Quisp is a sugar-sweetened breakfast cereal from the Quaker Oats Company. It was introduced in 1965 and continued as a mass-market grocery item until the late 1970s. Sometime afterward, the company sold the item sporadcially, and upon the rise of the Internet began selling it primarily online.
Quisp was initially marketed with a sister brand, Quake. Its joint-product television commercials were produced by Jay Ward, a major producer of animated television series.

I was trained by Quisp!
Yes, Quisp, that quazy little guy selling cereal was none other than Daws Butler, voice of Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, and literally hundreds of others, including lots of voices on the Fractured Fairy Tales portion of "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show". I used to go to his house every Tuesday for my voice acting lesson. The cameo appearance by Quake was voiced by William Conrad, who played Marshal Matt Dillon on the radio version of "Gunsmoke", as well as being the narrator of "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show". The announcer at the end was the great Paul Frees, who was none other than Boris Badenov on that show. These guys were a large part of Jay Ward's favorite voice actors, and he hired them a LOT! The fact that he did this made Ward's commercials for Quaker Oats products as enjoyable as his TV shows.
